The real estate market is hot, and buyers need to be aware of one of the most important aspects of purchasing property – title insurance. Unfortunately, many buyers aren’t aware of the many benefits of title insurance. We’re here to clear that up. In this article, we are going to explain what exactly title insurance is good for…which is to say, a LOT.
What Title Insurance is NOT Good For
First of all, let’s briefly describe what title insurance does not cover. Title insurance does not cover property damage, or injury claims brought against you by someone injured on your property. These would be covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy, which is separate and distinct from title insurance.
What Title Insurance IS Good For
In essence, title insurance protects your interest in the property from certain future claims brought by other parties. For example, if you purchase a piece of property, and then three years later a person claims that the property was gifted to them by their deceased grandfather, you have a potential legal mess on your hands. However, if you had an owner’s policy of title insurance, your title company would cover you and defend your legal claim to the property.
